At the Maserati Mountain Lounge’s Museo Transfrontaliero in the centre of Courmayeur opened a photo exhibition by Stefano Jeantet, Aosta Valley alpine military guide as well as photographer for the Tor and other competitions in a mountain environment, entitled “Facce da Tor” (“Faces from the Tor”). On display will be black and white portraits, in a large format and on special supports, of 18 protagonists of the last edition. The exhibition is organised by ElleErre, one of the sponsors of the Aosta Valley Endurance Trail, who has also produced thousands of yellow flags, symbols of the Tor, to be placed in the race packs of contestants and given to the public at the start and finish.
